Gemstones for Spring!

March 15, 2017


As the Spring Equinox comes upon us next week, the Bead Lounge is fully stocked with gemstones for the spring season.

Each season has its own energy. Spring is associated with rebirth and renewal. The Bead Lounge also feels the energy and excitement of spring also!

If you are hoping to connect to the energies of spring through stones, come and visit the Bead Lounge. We love to teach you a new beading technique in one of our fun classes or come in on a lazy Sunday morning to relax while stringing a new spring creation.

Here are some gemstones especially relating to this energetic season:

Green Aventurine

Green Aventurine is known as the “stone of opportunity,” and is considered to be the luckiest of all crystals. Aventurine is a variety of quartz characterized by bright inclusions of Mica or other minerals that give a shimmering silvery green or blue sheen effect to the stone.

Moss Agate

Known as the stone for gardeners and agriculturists, Moss Agate has a deep connection to nature. Though not banded as most agates, it still included in the agate family, which is a variety of quartz. . It is clear to milky white, with patterns similar to moss or lichen. Spots of red may occur and occasionally the crystal is dark green with bluish tones.

Rose Quartz

The rose quartz is a crystal that derives its name from its lovely rose pink color. These quartz crystals come in a stunning range of beautiful shades of pink. Known as the “love stone”, the rose quartz gives off the message of unconditional love, joy, warmth and emotional healing.

Emerald

It is said that all the green of nature is found in the emerald. Emerald, the green variety of Beryl, is the most famous and valuable green gemstone. Its beautiful green color, combined with durability and rarity, make it one of the most expensive gemstones. Deep green is the most desired color in Emeralds. Generally the paler the color of an emerald is of lesser value.

So, we are ready for the first day of spring . . .  we can inspire you to create a lovely piece of jewelry just to celebrate the new season! We look forward to your next visit to the Bead Lounge.
